Hello! Kristen Hood is a second grade teacher at Middletown Prairie Elementary. Miss Hood is in the ninth year of her teaching career and her sixth year here in Mahomet Seymour. Miss Hood has wanted to be a teacher for as long as she can remember and feels grateful she gets to be in the business of loving kids.
What Miss Hood likes most about teaching is the people she shares her classroom with. Miss Hood knows that she can learn just as much from her students as they can learn from her. She does her best to create an atmosphere and experience in her classroom where all her students feel respected and safe enough to unapologetically be themselves.
When Miss Hood isn't in her classroom, she is with her beautiful Golden Retriever Autumn or working one of her many other jobs, one at the local Ace Hardware owned by her parents. She is so excited to meet all the kiddos that will be in her room this school year
